how do I use 3DES encryption in PHP

We are planning to develope a website in PHP. We have requirements to use 3DES encryption. The website will be based on windows server. Do I need to do some preparations on the server to use this function in PHP ?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
